ENTRECOMP IMPLEMENTATION Project
As early as in 2016 the EU Commission developed "EntreComp: The Entrepreneurship Competence Framework" to put forward a shared definition of entrepreneurship as a competence, to bring consensus among stakeholders and establish a bridge between the worlds of education and work.
"EntreComp" has the important task to start conversations and improve understanding of what it means to be entrepreneurial in all aspects of life and it establishes the importance of entrepreneurship and initiative and help to develop entrepreneurial competences to tackle economic, social and cultural challenges. Additionally the European Commission developed in 2017 a User Guide called "EntreComp into Action" to support the further use and awareness of the EntreComp Frame-work.
Although widely endorsed, the "EntreComp Framework" has not yet been adopted at systemic level in the field of VET nor tested in real settings. The Project EntreComp Implementation (ECI) has the objective of "operationalizing" the "EntreComp Framework" by developing implementation tools and training content for the European VET systems to adopt "EntreComp" in operational environments and ignite entrepreneurship.
